An unidentified Lebanese citizen was arrested in Israel last Thursday night after he infiltrated the country through the Margaliot area on the Lebanon-Israel border. He was caught unarmed.

As part of the IDF's investigation into the incident, the army has reprimanded the company commander of the unit responsible for monitoring the area, the deputy commander was relieved of duty and four of the soldiers involved in the incident will face an investigation and possibly indictment.
